[audio]Henry Martin
The singer writes: "I remember seeing Joan Baez sing Henry Martin at Club 47 in Cambridge MA in 1960. This ballad is sometimes confused with Andrew Barton, because they are similar both in story and sometimes in tune. According to Sharp Henry Martin is probably the older ballad and was recomposed during the reign of James I. However, some scholars feel it is the other way around. Whichever is the case, Henry Martin dates to at least the 1700s...

[audio]So early in the spring - Roger McGuinn
The singer writes: "This is a sea chantey that got distilled, and transformed into a love ballad in the Appalachian Mountains.
